Plextor M5M (256GB) mSATA Reviewby Kristian Vättö on April 17, 2013 10:20 AM EST
Performance vs. Transfer Size
ATTO does a good job of showing us how sequential performance varies with transfer size. Most controllers optimize for commonly seen transfer sizes and neglect the rest. The optimization around 4KB, 8KB and 128KB transfers makes sense given that's what most workloads are bound by, but it's always important to understand how a drive performs across the entire gamut.
The M5M performs very similarly to Plextor's M5S and M5 Pro, although there is a small drop in write performance between IO sizes of 8KB and 256KB.
